Professional learning

Teachers can find professional learning available to help plan and implement quality and safe sport and physical activity.

The School Sport Unit Teacher Professional Learning team advises that due to the current COVID-19 situation, all face to face TPL workshops for Terms 3 are now cancelled.

The health and wellbeing of everyone involved is paramount and at the heart of this decision. We recognise the pressures that schools are currently experiencing and supporting staff and students is our highest priority.

 Sport and physical activity workshops

The workshops aim to develop confident and competent teachers to be coaches, leaders and role models. The majority of workshops are registered with NESA. Search the calendar or events.

Practical and face to face workshops

These practical workshops, most registered with NESA, provide teachers with skills to ensure the delivery of positive outcomes to students in sport and physical activity. 

Online and school-based professional learning

These courses are registered through NESA and support teacher practice when implementing quality sport and physical activity policies and programs within a school setting.
